Ballard Spahr attorneys and business representatives will participate in the second in a series of discussions about the evolving legal and policy framework for addressing climate change and its operational impacts. In this meeting, we will examine methane regulation and its effect on all types of businesses. Participants will also share thoughts and experiences on whether it pays to be proactive with regard to climate change when evaluating potential actions and investments, and discuss the implications of using an internal carbon price.

These invite-only roundtables provide the opportunity for participants from different sectors of the economy to share ideas and strategies for responding to the many impacts of climate change in ways that might identify new business opportunities and minimize disruption. There is no cost to participate.
